A health insurance broker, Glenn Morton, has founded a super PAC called “Occupy Obamacare” and begun producing videos that using horror-movie imagery to attack the Affordable Care Act. This video features Herman Cain Struck by Lightning at Tea Party Rally.

Who is Dr. Obamacare?

“His mouth is full of cursing, and deceit, and fraud; under his tongue is mischief and vanity; He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages, in the secret places doth he murder the innocent” – Psalms 10:7-8

Zombie representation of Obamacare

Brain AND bank account eater

NOT Racist; underneath our skin, all brains taste the same and our money is still GREEN!

Created in a lab by mad political scientists in the early 90′s, when health insurance costs were too high ;)

Unleashed on American citizens by equally mad Democrats in Congress; Republicans said no. They are worth a second look. Signed into law by President Obama, who now enjoys the term “Obamacare”. So do we. Bipartisanship! :o)

Gets power from misstatements, dis-information campaigns, outright falsehoods, and silence…

Only known weaknesses: The TRUTH, and the book “Passing Obamacare,” which not only makes fun of President Obama, Sarah Palin, George Bush, and others, but contains a solution to our healthcare crisis reducing premiums by thousands per family per year, and increases access to care

Click image for Dr. Sinister Obamacare. A vote for me is a vote for your future!…

Obamacare lesson: Obamacare raises insurance costs more than if it never existed. In fact, based on premium increases since Obamacare became law, the average cost of a health insurance policy will double in about 8 years.

This is because Obamacare requires insurance policies to cover more stuff…stuff that some may want, but all do not need. If a single person pays extra to cover children he/she doesn’t have, or a woman pays insurance companies for free birth control pills that can be bought cheaply ($9/mo. at Walmart/Target…look it up. Not kidding), the only thing accomplished is giving insurers and medical providers MORE money, NOT reducing how much people pay who would use those services.

Insurance does not sell healthcare…it sells money. If you see health insurance as kinda like a credit card (an company that charges interest for being between you and your purchase), then you would see how expensive it is in monthly premiums to put small purchases, or unnecessary ones, on an interest-charging financial product i.e. insurance.

Just because politicians SAY you will benefit from their actions doesn’t make it true…

The best way to learn how to reduce premiums and increase access to healthcare is by purchasing the book Passing Obamacare, which is available on Amazon and in all eBook formats. It is a funny, easy read but, at the end (120 pages), you will know a better solution, and why it’s better. Promise :o)

NBC: ‘Mystery Boom’ Felt and Heard in San Diego

“Moments after a mysterious sound was heard in San Diego, people started sending messages out via social media asking “what was it?”
NBCSanDiego received a number of reports from residents of a shaking or a loud noise just before 9 a.m. The U.S. Geological Survey has not reported a nearby earthquake. Officials at MCAS Miramar said the noise or vibration was not a sonic boom from their aircraft.”

Could it have been a ‘Military ‘Chaff’ ?

Loud unexplained booms Falls Church, VA 4-10-2012

So I have been living here for about 12 years, and I NEVER heard anything like it. I did move out of this area, temporary, in 2008 and returned in 2011. I started hearing these noises in August or September of 2011. I have no idea what it is. I wanna say its the highway, but how can the highway make this type of noise? idk, u be the judge.

[don't mind the lights, there just outdoor lamps from me neighbor ] by Bridg3it

Strange sounds were caught on tape in Falls Church, Virginia in the dead of night which are nothing like the mysterious noises reported worldwide in February. So, what are they?

What’s causing the mysterious sounds coming from the sky that are so loud they set off car alarms?

Mysterious sounds have been heard booming from the sky all around the world – in some cases they were so loud they set off car alarms.

The unsettling noises were heard recently from Europe to Canada, sounding like groans and powerful horns.

In Germany noises coming from the sky were recorded on a video camera and uploaded to YouTube, with car alarms clearly heard going off in the background.

Big boom still has Poconos buzzing

Was it a secret military exercise, the beginning of the Mayan prophesy or an alien invasion?

A loud boom, heard by Pocono residents and others throughout northeastern Pennsylvania the night of March 30, remains a mystery.

The boom, heard at about 10:10 p.m., shook cars and houses from Long Pond to Bushkill.

What it wasn’t

One thing it probably wasn’t, was an earthquake.

KABUL — Insurgents attacked cities across eastern Afghanistan on Sunday, including three prominent targets in Kabul, in a rare coordinated attack spanning some of the country’s most important urban centers. The Taliban called the effort the beginning of its spring offensive.

By evening, as the attacks were still ongoing, at least 14 police officers and nine civilians had been wounded, according to the Interior Ministry.

TALIBAN HITS 4 TOWNS IN BIG SPRING ATTACK TROOPS HUNKER DOWN FOR FIGHTING SEASON – SUPPORT THEM!

Today our troops in Afghanistan are dealing with a new wave of attacks and suicide bombings coming from the Taliban! Traditionally, the spring and summer are the big fighting seasons and this year does not look to be bucking the trend.

Taliban fighters launched coordinated attacks in up to 4 cities simultaneously. While of course our troops are always able to defeat the untrained and unequipped Taliban fighters, the message is clear – “get ready for a fight” and our troops must be taking notice today.

Taliban attacked government and international facilities in Kabul and three other cities today in their highest-profile assault this year.

Guerrillas seized three construction sites of multi-story buildings in the capital, using them as high ground from which to fire down on police and threaten government agencies, foreign embassies and military camps. By early evening, with some battles continuing after six hours, police had surrounded the attackers, Interior Ministry spokesman Siddiq Siddiqui said by phone. He said 14 officers and 9 civilians had been wounded and 19 militants killed.

One battle continued about a kilometer from the palace of President Hamid Karzai and the U.S. Embassy, where gunfire and at least two explosions jolted the neighborhood, Siddiqui said.

“This has just been a high-profile showing by the Taliban,” U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Jimmie Cummings, a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, or ISAF, said of the Afghanistan attacks. “The good news in all of this is how well the Afghan national security forces have responded,” he said by e-mail.

April 12, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — People in seven states reported seeing a fireball in the sky last night.

They weren’t sure exactly what was streaking across the sky, but astronomers from the Adler Planetarium confirm it was a meteor.

“This was a very bright meteor,” said astronomer Dr. Mark Hammergren. “It was brighter than the planet Venus is in the sky. So almost as bright as like a quarter moon. So that’s very bright as far as these go.”

There’s no predicting meteors, but astronomers say April tends to be a good time for spotting fireballs because there’s a higher concentration of debris from the asteroid belt at this time of the year.

SALINA, Kan. — Tornadoes and thunderstorms swept through the southern and central Plains Saturday, with dozens of reports of tornadoes in the region.

FOX 4′s Dave Dunn captured pictures Saturday afternoon of a tornado southwest of Salina, a town about 175 miles west of Kansas City. Damage was confined to rural areas and there were no immediate reports of injuries.

A viewer and storm chaser, Chris Bain provided this video of a tornado near Hesston, Kansas, which is about 40 miles north of Wichita.

The predicted severe storms come as five National Weather Service offices in Missouri and Kansas are conducting an experiment on how to better convey risks from tornadoes and severe storms.

The new warning system comes after last year’s tornado on May 22 that killed 158 people in Joplin, Missouri.

The National Weather Service will use more graphic terms to push people to find safe shelter. Forecasters in the test area will continue issuing traditional tornado warnings, but for “significant” and “catastrophic” scenarios, they can add information at the bottom of the warnings issued to media outlets.

When a storm has the potential to cause “significant” damage, meteorologists may include terms such as “complete destruction possible” or “major power outages in path of tornado highly likely.”

In a “catastrophic” outlook, descriptions may include “This is a life-threatening situation,” “You could be killed if not underground or in a tornado shelter.”

Storm chasers Dave Demko and Heidi Farrar documented this VIOLENT “drillbit” tornado from close range near Cherokee, Oklahoma during the major tornado outbreak on April 14, 2012. EXTREME wind velocities were responsible for the dramatic audible roar as the tornado moved within 100 yards of them. This was one of two simultaneous tornadoes that occurred at around 8:00 PM, and was produced by the same storm that went on to put down multiple long-track tornadoes across southern Kansas, causing damage in the Wichita metro area and Andover Air Force base.

On APRIL 15, 1865, President Lincoln died. He was shot the night before in Ford’s Theater.

On APRIL 15, 1912, the Titanic sank. It struck an iceberg the night before.

In 1954, APRIL 15 became the deadline for filing Income tax returns.

Though the Constitution banned a Federal Income Tax (Art.1,Sec.9), Lincoln passed an emergency income tax to pay for the Civil War.

It was repealed in 1873.

An income tax was attempted in 1894, but the Supreme Court declared it unconstitutional in Pollock v Farmers’ Loan.

With World War I threatening, Woodrow Wilson thought ending tariff taxes on imports between countries would bring world peace.

As tariffs were the Federal Government’s main source of revenue, Wilson proposed replacing tariff revenue with a Federal income tax, passed in 1913 with the 16th Amendment. Originally, it was just a one percent tax on the top one percent richest people, intended only to ‘soak-the-rich’ of the likes of the Rockefellers and the Carnegies, which they avoided by moving their money into tax-free foundations, such as the Rockefeller Foundation and Carnegie Foundation.

In 1942, with World War II, Franklin Roosevelt increased and expanded the Federal Income Tax with “the greatest tax bill in American history.” This began the trend of companies outsourcing their manufacturing to other countries to avoid taxes in order to stay competitive globally.

Kennedy stated February 6, 1961:

“I have asked the secretary of the treasury to report on whether present tax laws may be stimulating in undue amounts the flow of American capital to the industrial countries abroad.”

John F. Kennedy stated April 20, 1961:

“In meeting the demands of war finance, the individual income tax moved from a selective tax imposed on the wealthy to the means by which the great majority of our citizens participate in paying.”

When the economy slowed, Kennedy’s stimulus plan was to lower taxes on everyone, as he suggested at a news conference, November 20, 1962:

“It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now…

Cutting taxes now is not to incur a budget deficit, but to achieve the more prosperous, expanding economy which can bring a budget surplus.”

On January 17, 1963, JFK stated:

“Lower rates of taxation will stimulate economic activity and so raise the levels of personal and corporate income as to yield within a few years an increased – not a reduced – flow of revenues to the federal government.”

John F. Kennedy stated in his Annual Message, January 21, 1963:

“In today’s economy, fiscal prudence and responsibility call for tax reduction even if it temporarily enlarges the Federal deficit – why reducing taxes is the best way open to us to increase revenues…

It is no contradiction – the most important single thing we can do to stimulate investment in today’s economy is to raise consumption by major reduction of individual income tax rates.”

JFK mentioned in his Message to Congress on Tax Reduction, January 24, 1963:

“Our tax system still siphons out of the private economy too large a share of personal and business purchasing power and reduces the incentive for risk, investment and effort-thereby aborting our recoveries and stifling our national growth rate.”

On September 18, 1963, JFK stated in a national radio and TV address:

“A tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a balanced Federal budget.

Every taxpayer and his family will have more money left over after taxes for a new car, a new home, new conveniences, education, and investment.

Every businessman can keep a higher percentage of his profits in his cash register or put it to work expanding or improving his business, and as the national income grows, the Federal Government will ultimately end up with more revenues…

Prosperity is the real way to balance our budget. Our tax rates are so high today that the growth of profits and pay checks in this country have been stunted.

Our tax revenues have been depressed and our books for out of the last 10 years have been in the red. By lowering tax rates, by increasing jobs and income, we can expand tax revenues and bring finally our budget into balance.”

“I believe God did give mankind unlimited gifts to invent, produce and create. And for that reason it would be wrong for governments to devise a tax structure that suppresses those gifts.”

What a stormy day it was across the Nation’s mid section yesterday. SPC’s storm report page showed over 120 reports of tornadoes. However, as assessments occur today, that might change though we pray that it will not. Another stormy day for the central section of the US with a slight risk extending north to south from the Great Lakes to East Texas with a moderate risk over portions of Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

Storm chaser Brad Mack films a tornado as it barrels through Kansas as residents across the Midwest and Plains survey damage from severe storms and tornadoes that left at least 5 people dead in Oklahoma.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Tornadoes raking communities across the Midwest and Plains left five people dead and at least 29 injured in Oklahoma, damaging a hospital, homes and other buildings as a vast severe weather front plunged eastward Sunday across the nation’s midsection.

Oklahoma emergency officials said five people died after a tornado touched down at 12:18 a.m. Sunday in and around the northwest Oklahoma town of Woodward, the high winds damaging homes, toppling trees and downing power lines about 140 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. The brunt of the damage was reported on the west side of the town of about 12,000 and its outskirts, where search teams scoured the rubble for hours for any still trapped or injured.

Storms also were reported in Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska as a wide-ranging storm system lumbered its way across the nation’s midsection Saturday and Sunday. Lightning, large hail and heavy downpours accompanied the system, which was so large that it still posed a severe weather threat from Minnnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan in the north to eastern Texas and Louisiana hundreds of miles to the south.

Woodward,OK. Hit Again

This week marked the 65th anniversary of one of the worst tornadoes in Oklahoma history.

On April 9, 1947, 116 people died as one third of the town of Woodward was destroyed by a tornado.

According to the NWS Norman, there are multiple reports of structural damage from an apparent tornado that struck the town around 12:18 early this morning. A tornado warning was issued for Harper County, specifically mentioning Woodward at 12:00, with a severe weather statement again mentioning Woodward at 12:08.

Good News From Wichita

From Sedgwick County Emergency Management concerning the tornado that passed across the Wichita Metro tonight:

We will have significant damage across south and east Sedgwick County; numerous buildings suffered partial collapse or worse. We still are trying to get a handle on situational awareness as far as building damage. So far, injury reports are few and minor.

ADDITION:

He did go on to say that the assessment is not complete and they do have a mobile home park that was hit and a nursing home that was deroofed.

OUR GUYS
Mike Wilhelm and John Brown are back in Oklahoma at their hotel. They saw four or five tornadoes, including the twin tornadoes near Cherokee OK.

Tornado Passing Andover KS, Another Heading Toward Salina

Tornado was visible at 10:36 p.m. near McConnell AFB.

The tornado has crossed the southern part of Wichita and is moving through eastern Wichita
The upper low will continue to eject from the eastern Rockies into the western Great Lakes area and gradually weaken as it drags a front into our area on Monday. With the upper trough hanging back, the front will move through slowly allowing for showers and thunderstorms on Monday and Tuesday. Right now it appears that the severe weather threat is limited with the biggest potential for marginally severe hail and damaging wind coming with storms fueled by the heat of the day. The trough finally drags through by late Tuesday which paves the way for a couple of days of nice weather on Wednesday and Thursday. However, do not expect to see much temperature change. The front will usher in some drier air, but the upper flow stays zonal so no real temperature change with highs still around 80. Rainfall amounts are expected to be in the 1 to 2 inch range with good coverage.
